1

1/3
cup sugar
1/2
cup bourbon
4
cups ice cubes
1/2
cup fresh mint leaves
4
sprigs fresh mint, if desired
Additional blackberries, if desired

Directions

  • 1 In blender, place 1 pint blackberries, the sugar and bourbon. Cover; blend on high speed until blackberries are pureed. Add ice. Cover; blend 30 to 60 seconds longer or until ice is crushed. Add mint leaves. Cover; blend until mint is finely chopped and mixture is well blended.

Expert Tips

For a family-friendly nonalcoholic spritzer, swap out the bourbon for ginger ale.

If you have small silver or pewter cups, you can serve your mint julep the way it’s traditionally served at the Kentucky Derby. Chill the cups first to keep the beverage cold while sipping.
